Bills Just Got More Expensive

From April 1st your household bills got that little bit more expensive.

Often referred to as National Price-Hike Day April 1st is the date when many price increases came into effect around the UK. From water and energy bills, to medical prescriptions, you’re likely to pay more in 2019. It has been estimated in some circles to cost the average householder an extra £240 per year!

Phone Bills

The major phone providers are going to increase their prices by around 2.5%. This includes O2, Three, Vodaphone and EE.

Sky TV Bills

Sky TV have said that they will increase the prices for TV and broadband by £1 or £2 a month (averaging at £3.50). So it will increase your bill by about £42 per year!

Energy Bills

If you are on a standard variable tariff for your energy bills, expect to be hit hard. 36 suppliers are increasing (or already have done) their prices by over 10%!

Water Bills

The average household will see their water bills rise by up to 2%.

Council Tax

This is the second highest council tax increase in a decade, meaning that the average UK household will be paying £78 more this year.

TV Licence

Your TV licence fee will increase by £4.

NHS Prescriptions

The NHS prescription fee will increase by 20p, taking the cost up to £9.

Household Debt Problems

Although (most of) these are only slight increases, they all add up, pushing many households who are struggling to repay their household bills over the edge. If you are struggling to repay your household bills, contact our trained advisers for no-obligation help and advice.
